Major League Wrestling continues to grow and news just broke that MLW Fusion will have another home on Fite TV. MLW can already be found on beIN Sports and YouTube each week, and the addition of Fite TV gives the promotion an added layer of visibility amongst wrestling fans.
Slow and steady may win the race for Major League Wrestling. While it can seem as though independent promotions come and go like the wind either due to trying to expand too quickly or working beyond their means by pulling in major star after major star, MLW has remained steady on its course as it expands across the United States.
With its roots firmly planted in Orlando since 2003, MLW has shown that it can pull in crowds throughout the rest of the state as well as in New York with their Chicago debut coming in just over a week with Fightland.
What does the arrival of MLW on Fite TV mean for the promotion? Until now, MLW’s monthly super cards have only been available for live viewing to the in-person audience with the matches broken out over the next several weeks on MLW Fusion. Could the addition of Fite TV to MLW’s broadcast platform lead to live streams of future events, either their monthly tapings or a completely new set of regular events?
The tweet from Fite TV promoting the addition of MLW Fusion notes that the show will broadcast every Tuesday beginning October 30 which puts it a few days behind the beIN Sports and YouTube schedules, but for fans who regularly use the FITE app to watch Ring of Honor’s weekly show as well as pay-per-view events from ROH, NWA, and SHINE amongst others, this is a fantastic way to get brand new eyes on the product.
New fans to MLW will be in for a treat in November with Chicago’s Fightland event headlined by The Lucha Bros defending the MLW World Tag Team Titles against LA Park and Hijo de LA Park while Low Ki defends the MLW World Heavyweight Title against former champion Shane Strickland.
The entire card is stacked and hits Cicero Stadium on November 8 coming to Fusion in on beIN, YouTube, and now Fite TV throughout the rest of the month.
